All moves require planning and preparation to go well, particularly if you are planning to start a new life in a completely different area or even a different country. Moving a short distance can be an entirely different experience to a long-distance relocation. Here are some of our tips to help you get ready for your move.

For many people, making a fresh start means getting rid of the clutter they’ve accumulated over the years rather than taking it with them to their new home. If you want to travel light as you journey to your new location, take a look at your possessions and think about how long it’s been since you used them – if you haven’t used or worn something in a year or more, it’s likely that you won’t miss it when it’s gone, so you can safely donate it or sell it to make a little extra money to put towards your move.

Organisation is key to minimise stress when moving. It’s a great idea to get a calendar or make a chart so you can clearly mark your moving day and the specific days you want to have certain tasks completed – for example, the day you can begin packing up your clothes or defrosting the freezer. This will help you to stay in control and make sure no important jobs are forgotten.

Of course, a big part of making your long-distance move a success is knowing that you can work with a team of professional, skilled and experienced removal experts who will take excellent care of all your items and ensure they all reach your new home in perfect condition.
